Harvel Plastics Inc. has published a new comprehensive 72-page CPVC Fire Sprinkler Piping Installation Guide to provide the fire sprinkler industry with a comprehensive printed resource for technical data on installing CPVC fire sprinkler systems.
The guide includes complete instructions for handling and fabricating a Harvel® CPVC fire sprinkler piping system, as well as extensive engineering and design data, application listings and approvals, detailed reference tables and pressure ratings, industry standards and test methods, explicit assembly procedures, safety and caution data, storage and handling information, contractor resources, and much more.
According to the company, Harvel CPVC fire sprinkler pipe is produced in strict compliance with ASTM standards and is in conformity with all major model codes. It is NSF certified for potable water use, listed by UL and C-UL, Factory Mutual approved, and approved for NFPA light hazard applications (NFPA 13, 13R & 13D systems).
CPVC material characteristics and pipe dimensions provide unique advantages in fire sprinkler installations, says Harvel, including superior hydraulics, ease of joining, and increased hanger spacing in comparison to other plastics. It is assembled with inexpensive, readily available tools and is based on a product with a continuous service history of more than 40 years.
